    Re: Missing the bluegrass sound

    I once read that it takes about 10 years to sound like you've been playing for a decade... and some of us don't progress that quick.

    Re: High frets on mandolin.

    Generally speaking, above 14 is pretty hard to get a nice tone out of. A really well set up instrument can probably do it, but the precision of finger placement required and the leveling of the...

    Enjoyed both episodes today- nice work.

    Re: Bluegrass Songs

    It's kind of like jazz standards. Everyone sort of knows "All of Me" or "Misty."

    FWIW, I got my Silverangel directly from Ken, and I love it.

    If your budget really is $3k, I'd spend $350-500 of that on a flight to Nashville (or a similar great shop--Mandolin Store/Elderly/etc), a cheap hotel, cab fare to Carter Vintage/Gruhns, and I'd play...

    If electric Dola and Mandocello don't count, I'd love to learn cajun accordion. Don't know if I have time for all of that.

    How about a post demonstrating instruments that have certain sound qualities, ie. "Tubby," "woody," "Good Bark," etc.
